Recent Reads

Here are a few recent reads... and really good ones too! Woot!

Jackson Rule by Dinah McCall
You can buy it here.

For powerful emotion and unforgettable romance Sharon Sala can't be beat. This beautifully repackaged classic is sure to delight her long-time fans and attract new ones!

Jackson Rule had spent nearly half his life behind bars for murder. Now he was starting over--or trying to. Once he laid hungry eyes on his new employer, though, his resolve to lead a simple solitary life deserted him, replaced by yearnings for fierce, forbidden passion.

Preacher's daughter Rebecca Hill was raised to give folks the benefit of the doubt--though maybe this time she'd taken charity a bit too far. True Jackson Rule had paid his debt to society, and was a hard, honest worker. What threatened to undo her was the sheer burning desire she felt in his presence, and the sinking feeling that her heart would be his captive forever.

This was a recommendation I saw on The Bradford Bunch by Ann Aguirre and holy smokes is this book GREAT! I love Jackson. He's so deep, tortured, and angsty... but he doesn't do anything by halves... no siree. Jackson does everything full-out and with everything he has... including love. Oh, he's oh so very dreamy. :o)

The Sheik and the Pregnant Bride by Susan Mallery
Silhouette Special Edition
March 2008

Maggie Collins had come to the exotic kingdom of El Deharia to restore Prince Qadir's antique car…not to get married. The no-frills mechanic had been burned by love before, and marriage—even to a seductive sheik—didn't top her agenda. But then Qadir made her an offer she should have refused.

It was meant to be a temporary engagement…until Maggie discovered she was pregnant. Now Qadir was honor-bound to give Maggie and her child the protection of his name. He never expected her to sweep him off his feet.

Would there be a royal wedding after all?

Dude, make fun all you want, but this book rocked. Sheiks baby! Lots of humor, wit, and awesome characterization. Woot! While her last two books (including one sheik book) were mediocre at best this one was fabulous! Ms. Mallery is back!

What Mattered Most by Linda Winfree
Available in Ebook here.
Available in print here.

A man in the worst place he can be—between two women—and forced to choose which one lives or dies.

Houston homicide detective, John O’Reilly, is torn between two women. One is the woman he’s loved without hope for years. The other carries his unborn child. Now, a man bent on revenge wants O’Reilly to choose, and any choice he makes could cost him everything.

Gutsy sheriff’s deputy, Lanie Falconetti, is determined not to repeat her mother’s mistakes in love. Her no-strings attached affair with John O’Reilly leads to an unexpected, but joyfully welcomed pregnancy. However, the shadow from John’s past threatens not only her chance at happiness, but her life and that of her unborn baby as well.

I read this on a recommendation from Lori and boy, oh boy am I glad I did. This book was awesome! A little suspense, a lot of relationship with tons of emotion, great characterization by an author who has immense talent is the prize you get when you read What Mattered Most.


  1. Thanks, Anne, for making my day! I'm glad you liked What Mattered Most. John is one of my favorite heroes.

  2. Oh Linda, you writing is fabulous! I absolutely LOVED this book. :-)

  3. You turned me onto Sala a year or more ago. I'll have to try this title. And the Winfree you and Lori both are recommending. You already know I'll pass on the Sheik, LOL. Thanks!
